Dual Monitor Questions

I Think this is fairly simple.  

I have an HP Compaq 6510b.  I use it's screen and an additional 19 inch monitor for dual monitor display.  

I can turn it on and off manually.  My problem is, when I head out for the day, I don't always remember to turn it off, and it's just a pain to go in later and change.

Is there a setting or something that can detect when the external Monitor is NOT hooked up and switch it back to single display mode automatically?

Any Help would be awesome.

Check your graphics driver. There should be some settings there. Normally, when the monitor is disconnected it should go back.
Are you removing the cable while the laptop is on or off?

OK.  I don't have that in my display properties. I musta removed it.  

You think I can find that on the HP website?

You need to find your display drivers. They should be on the HP site. If you're not sure you can check your device manager.
